From STAFF REPORTS
This year has been a year of growth and change for the Heritage Alliance. It has been a year of struggle, but also one of triumph. Even when closed to the public, the Heritage Alliance kept working to preserve local history and share it with the world. The Heritage Alliance created digital exhibits and filmed and edited an educational web series. The alliance also celebrated the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, and worked on a National Register Nomination.
On Dec. 1, the alliance will be sharing special content on social media, including a railroad history tour, a special peek into a historic restoration project in progress, our first ever trivia event, and much more. The Heritage Alliance will be sharing this content as a part of Giving Tuesday as a way to raise awareness of our mission and the wonderful history we have all around us.
Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving and unity that will take place on Dec. 1. The day is designed to drive an influx of generosity, citizen engagement, business and philanthropy activation, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world.
At a time when we are all experiencing the pandemic, generosity is what brings people together across the globe. Generosity gives everyone power to make a positive change in the lives of others and is a fundamental value anyone can act on. It’s a day for everyone around the world to stand together and give back in all ways, no matter who or where we are.
Like so many non-profits during this time, the Heritage Alliance has had to rethink programs and planned fundraisers, and it will not be able to host the annual, holiday fundraiser this year.
Our goal is always to educate and entertain. On GivingTuesday, we encourage you to make a donation to the Heritage Alliance, even a $2 donation to the museums, or a $7 donation to Oak Hill School helps to ensure our buildings and artifacts are taken care of and that we can continue to offer our educational programs.
You can make a donation on GivingTuesday via www.heritageall.org or on Facebook.
The Heritage Alliance is dedicated to the preservation of the architectural, historical, and cultural heritage of our region and to providing educational experiences related to history and heritage for a wide range of audiences.
